Chanticleer Flowering Pear
Fast Growing Tree with Amazing Spring and Fall Color!
The Callery Pear tree, Pyrus calleryana, 'callery X Aristocrat cultivar', is a tight, narrow, pyramidal, thornless, ornamental pear tree. The growth habit is dense, narrowly pyramidal, and evenly branched with crisp glossy green foliage; some specimens appear almost columnar in habit. Oval, glossy green leaves turn an attractive reddish purple in autumn.
New growth shows a reddish tint. It displays a heavy abundance of single white flowers in the spring and an outstanding reddish-orange to purple fall color.
This deciduous tree is a true four season tree with white flowers in early spring, shiny, dark green foliage in summer that changes to long lasting, dramatic shades of red and purple in mid to late autumn. In winter the tight, narrow form is a refined silhouette in the landscape.
Callery Pear trees are very hardy and fast growing, and are an excellent choice for a trouble-free, beautiful addition in any landscape situation!
